It’s no secret that there’s great live music around every corner in Chicago. And when summertime comes, the level of talent in the city only increases with the amazing acts that tour through the city. That’s why we’ve got your go-to list of acts you gotta see this summer, right here!
The Queen of Soul may be retiring, but she is headed back to Chicago once again, and that is something you can’t miss. We all have “hearing “Respect” sung live” on our bucket lists, and here’s our chance to cross it off! While the tickets don’t come super cheap, it’s hard to put a price on witnessing the 75 year-old living piece of music history perform right in front of you.
Leslie “Feist” is back in Chicago for a two-night stint at the Vic Theater, which means you have double the odds of snagging a ticket. Feist delivers an etherial indie pop performance that only a truly talented singer-songwriters can. Her new album, Pleasure, is out April 28th, so you can be sure that you’ll hear her latest songs. Fingers crossed her shows will be as good as her performance on Sesame Street!
Concerts in Millennium Park are nice, but this summer the shows have upped their game! Make sure you catch self-taught singer-songwriter Alynda Lee Segarra front Hurray for the Riff Raff. Enjoy traditional folk/country melodies sung by the young and talented front woman. The show will open with local grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Matthew Santos who won’t disappoint. The best part of all? All this talent is a part of FREE show!
